I feel all the same.
Yet another file dialog style in Firefox used to bug me. Since 
the last upgrade the Gnome save dialog is used. While i'm used to 
it from other apps and are usualy all for consitency, I couldn't 
help but wish for the old dialog to come back only because of the 
constant need for expansion.

If there would be a gconf key to make it default to expanded 
I would imediately set it (I did search for one). But I would 
prefer to not even have an expand/collapse widget at all.
